7 Million Dollars in Charity
The wealth of Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu was spent most generously in the path of Allah.
Many were the Muslim slaves, tortured and persecuted by their non-Muslim masters, who were liberated by the wealth of Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu.
The most eminent among them was none other than Sayyiduna Bilal Radhiyallahu Anhu, the Muazzin of Rasulullah Sallallaahu Alayhi Wa Sallam.
In the work Khulafaa-ur-Rashideen, it is stated that in the period before Hijrah, Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Radhiyallahu Anhu spent *35 000 gold coins on the general welfare of the believers.
(*Approximate value today is 7 million U.S Dollars).
